A Rainy Night in Georgia

Happy St. Patty's Day! It is certainly green and rainy here; is this what Ireland looks like? Several thousand motorhomes parked on the muddy grass, we are at a monster motorhome rally in Perry, GA. We are parked in a nest of other Roadtreks, but most of the people are in big Class As.

Roadtrek group. Ours is on the right.

There are a lot of interesting-sounding seminars, along with other activities. This is going to be a quick blog entry before I head out to the first one.

We got here yesterday morning, after dumping our holding tanks (we had already taken on a tank-full of water) and topping off the propane. Parking here is dry camping, which means completely self-supporting. Seems like an oxymoron considering all the rain.

The first thing we did was get the motorhome weighed ---- each wheel individually. This will help us get the rig balanced, and tell us how much tire pressure to carry. Wednesday I will be attending a seminar on that subject (as well as see the results of the weighing).

Today will be seminars on cooking with the microwave-convection oven and taking a trip to Newfoundland. Future seminars will cover both technical (mechanical) and lifestyle subjects. There are also new rigs on display and a ton of vendors trying to sell us stuff.

We expect to be here until Friday, then it's back to winter. I will try to keep you posted. But for now it's into the rain and off to Newfoundland.
